HyperExchange Witness-node Startup Guide¶
Last updated for v1.0.7
After Building, the witness_node can be launched with:
The node will automatically create a data directory including a config file. It may take several hours to fully synchronize the blockchain. After syncing, you can exit the node using Ctrl+C and setup the command-line wallet by editing
witness_node_data_dir/config.ini as follows:
rpc-endpoint = 127.0.0.1:8090
IMPORTANT: By default the witness node will start in reduced memory ram mode by using some commands. In order to run a full node with all the account history you need to remove partial-operations and max-ops-per-account from your config file. Please note that currently(2018-07-02) a full node will need more than 100GB of RAM to operate and required memory is growing fast.
After starting the witness node again, in a separate terminal you can run:
Set your inital password:
>>> set_password <PASSWORD> >>> unlock <PASSWORD>
To import your initial balance:
>>> import_balance <ACCOUNT NAME> [<WIF_KEY>] true
If you send private keys over this connection,
rpc-endpoint should be bound to localhost for security.
